If I had the time I would consider researching the vetting, selection process and the qualifications of those doing it.I think possibly there HAS to be something Good about RR HOF as an organization.
I'm sure (it's a place) where they "archive" things..
I mean if it WASN'T there didn't exist.... If there was No R&R HOF..what do you want to call it? "Hub"
Hub of RR.."information" ..
an aggregator of historical documentation.....
Just trying to THINK there has to something "good" about it...
It seems otherwise what?
You'd have to have a stack of Rolling Stone, Melody Maker, Creem, Jazz & Pop, magazines stored in a warehouse somewhere -that in their pages -would have within them the documented timeline of R&R. (otherwise known as Joe's basement)
Trying to think there has to be something good about it. Reason to exist.
Except for Todd Rundgren and Tina Turner, that is the weak field of nominees.Only Dionne Warwick saw this coming, but the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced a slate of nominees today that we all know some of you are too cool to care about, but will still comment on.
Personally, I won't visit Cleveland until Thin Lizzy is at least nominated. With that said, here it is:
